Today is the big day!! Paint and Pixels will open at Midnight and our students will be at the door more than ready to settle into our beautiful classroom. There will be the sound of chairs scraping, the chatter of sweet voices and the happy laughter of excitement. The excitement has been palpable for days now. There has been such a build up of anticipation for this class. And for good reason. It is going to be amazing!
At 11:00 I'm going to Ivy's house so we can open the doors together at midnight. We will be in our PJs and will drink a toast to our good fortune at discovering this common passion for digital art and for making our dream to share that passion with others a reality.
I absolutely never would have predicted I would find myself here at the front of a classroom with my friend Ivy welcoming almost 200 students who are thrilled about learning digital painting and combining it with traditional art. Life is so full of red thread moments and I am grateful I picked up the one that led me here to this day , to this moment, to this life.
I don't imagine I will be sleeping much tonight because we are just too wound up with the thrill of it all to settle down just yet :) Happy Happy and obviously you can tell by the self-portrait a wee bit nervous too :)
P.S. Thank you to all who have subscribed to my new blog this week! I am so happy to have the company and you motivated me to post again without delay!
